Predators are very annoying animals. We now all of the sudden have cats, dogs, and hawks attacking our chickens. What to do? What to do?

I was raised if the predator is killing an animla that makes money and/or produces food you put a bullet in the predator. Well thats fine and dandy, but I would like to see what the alternatives are first because the cats are my grandmas and the dog is the neighbors across the street and the hawk is obvious, but what do I do?

I am open for any and all suggestions and I hate to say it, but I guess the bullet will be the worse case scenario option.

Just looked @ your coop. How are they getting to the chickens?

We open the coop every morning and close it every nite. The chickens have full free range. Each time they have been attacked has been before noon everyday. The dog from which I understand now maybe a stray and not the neighbor cross the street actually killed 3 birds in the coop. There is one cat that I believe has killed 3 chickens while they was foraging in the yard. The hawk I am iffy about because I couldnt tell if it had anything when it took off, but there is some birds go and no trace of nothing not even feathers.
